This instant pot galbi jjim recipe takes way less time than a three hour braising, and tastes great!
I first had Galbi Jjim in Korea. I was there during the summer of 2011 to go to a summer program, but met up with a friend before I left. These braised short ribs were in a huge bowl and was perfect with rice. Here’s a pic of baby Hillary:
Local Spotlight: Prairie Creek Farms wanted me to try out some of the short ribs and I had to figure out how to use them. This popped into my brain and I started doing the research. Braising takes a lot of time, and it’s about a three hour ordeal to make this. As for dinner, that’s not the most practical or my style. I found this awesome version in the Instant Pot at Kimchmari and I appreciate her taking the time to investigate how to make this experience happen in the Instant Pot! I adjusted for the things that I had available to me and it turned out awesome!
This was almost a disaster because my pot wouldn’t seal and we had our friends coming over for dinner, but they ended right on time. Crisis averted!!
Today’s a short post because I’d love for you to explore Kimchimari and get on with your summer!
